The December 2017 issue will be the 600th Rinko magazine published by Shin Nippon Kyoiku Tosho Co.,Ltd in Japan.
For over 50 years Rinko magazine has been a global source of information for Koi keepers since it was founded by Shuji Fujita.
Through the Japanese edition, and also the electronic English version, Rinko magazine continues to educate Koi keepers worldwide.
I am proud to have contributed to Rinko magazine over the last decade and worked with Shuji Fujita and his daughter Kiyoko on other projects, not least Nishikigoi Mondo. Fujita san’s knowledge of the history of Nishikigoi is truly encyclopaedic, and he is fascinating to talk to in this respect.
Congratulations to Shuji Fujita, Kiyoko Fujita and all the team at Rinko magazine.
